NileGuide Expert tip:
Dress warmly in winter since the building is not heated. There's no parking, so most people find their way there either on foot through the commercial center of Arab eastern Jerusalem, or by shuttle bus from the Israel Museum not far from the Knesset on the western side of town.
- The centerpiece of the museum is the serene inner courtyard with its pool and fountain, providing a good place to contemplate the fact that this very site was the spot where Godfrey De Bouillon launched his successful attack on the walls of Jerusalem during the Crusades of 1099.
